Bonjour and happy Wednesday. And happy March! Where did February go? That month was pretty uneventful for me and then March kicked off with Emerald City Comic Con and four author events to follow throughout the month. It’s a great month to be into books.BookI am so excited to have made it on to the launch team for Clotilde Dusoulier’s new book, Tasting Paris. It will feature 100 recipes to make me (and you) feel like I am one step…

Wednesday Whimsy #15 – Brooklyn in Love Blog Tour

Bonjour and happy Wednesday! For this WW I am happy to be a part of the blog tour for Brooklyn in Love, the latest book by Amy Thomas. I followed Amy’s blog, God I Love Paris, while she was working there for a few years and I enjoyed reading her first book, Paris, My Sweet. Her blog posts from her time there were short but thoughtful and Paris, My Sweet gave readers a deeper background into her stay in the…

Bonjour! Happy Wednesday and Happy (belated) New Year. With how busy the holidays were I have not put much active thought into the Wednesday Whimsy posts. Now everything is so slow that I’m looking forward a little too much to making a quiche later in the week. Though honestly I’d look forward to that on a busy week too. Book T.V. Show I recently finished the Netflix show Call My Agent (Dix pour cent in France). I kept coming across it…

Bonjour Mercredi et bonjour mes amis. I hope you will enjoy the fun French links I have for you this week. Book  This week I’m making two recipes from the French Market Cookbook by Clotilde Dusoulier. I’ve had it for a few years but have only made one or two things from it. This week that will change! I am attempting the butternut squash and celery root soup and Corsican turnovers with winter squash. This will also be my first…

5 of My Favorite French Books (Wednesday Whimsy #11)

5 of My Favorite French Books (Wednesday Whimsy #11)

Bonjour and happy Wednesday! I am currently in the air and on my way to Atlanta for a road trip to New Orleans for Nola StoryCon. I get to spend a week in the south eating the best food and enjoying one last chance at summer weather (Seattle has been very disappointing, but then again no one has AC so that’s probably a good thing). I am very excited to be meeting Charlaine Harris and Delilah S. Dawson for the…

Bonjour! Happy Wednesday and Happy September. I’ve spent the past month obsessively reading so I could complete all the squares for the Seattle Public Library’s Summer Book Bingo. It felt pretty good to set a goal for myself and complete it, even if it is something I was going to do anyway. Read with a purpose, I say. Now I’m on to catch up on ARCs on NetGalley. Book One of the final books I read for Summer Book Bingo…

Bonjour friends and happy Wednesday. I feel like I started my week off on the right foot because of a post by Georgianna Lane on Instagram. She’s hosting a giveaway and the question she asks to be answered to win is, “leave a quick comment about something that inspires you this week.” I had two answers: my writing group (where I currently am writing from. I worked on book stuff too though) and looking forward to my Atlanta/New Orleans trip next month….

Bonjour mes amis! Happy mercredi and welcome back to another installment of Wednesday Whimsy. Book Today I found out about a new Paris-themed book on Anne’s Instagram called Don’t be a Tourist in Paris. It sounds DELIGHTFUL: “…find the most eccentric architecture, get cozy in hidden cafes, party in the catacombs, tour the city with a broken heart, and wander like a true bohemian. A lively, eccentric and esoteric guide to the hidden Paris of your dreams, from an outsider…

Bonjour Mercredi! I have been extra obsessed with French things lately so I have a full post of things to share. Book The new book by Antoine Laurain, The Portrait, came out last Tuesday. It’s the most recent published in English but was actually his first book in France. It is a very short book at 128 pages but I feel like it is just the right length for the story. I’m publishing the review tomorrow so check back if…
